Just a quick update: I got the picture "scaled up" (Thank You, Office Max!), got most of the dimensions plotted out, and got most of the rough materials purchased. I'm not telling my wood selection, I have to have some element of surprise. I wish I could have gotten more done, but I'm currently serving 4 days of active duty with my Battalion-- stationed in California.

Turning good wood into designer firewood on a daily basis.....

I never plan my days. "Premeditated" is a word Lawyers love to toss around in courtrooms.

Well, first of all, thank you for your service! I am excited to see how this turns out. I have been thinking about how I would handle this, as this is one of what I consider to be a project I call, "I do this because I can...."

Please keep us posted, and thanks in advance for doing so.

Fabian

I used to be fairly indecisive, but now....... I'm not so sure.

Finally made it home, and now I've got to be ready to go on a mini-deployment in less than 2 weeks. To a global hotspot. Tons of OCONUS travel and security online classes mean I may not be in the shop much, if at all. Dang it....

I'm resurecting a "dead thread" of mine....

Attachment 255657After many, many, many hours of carving by hand, sanding, a lot of self-criticism, and excessive prodding by the now Sr. Chief, I can call these anchors DONE!!!!!

Congratulations on finishing. I see you made things a lot simpler by taking the round dimension out of the design. Smart move.

Mutual decision, and I'm glad Sr. Worked with me on that. I'm still pretty embarrassed by how much time I have it (50+ hours) though. Lucky for me, though, the results taught me better ways to build skills.
